Zecharia Sitchin's key ideas are based on the assumption that ancient
myths are not myths but historical and scientific texts. According to
Sitchin, ancient Sumerian clay tablets reveal that gods from another
planet (Niburu, which orbits our Sun every 3,600 years) arrived on
Earth some 450,000 years ago and created humans by genetic engineering
of female apes.
Erich von Däniken is the author of several popular books
promoting the idea that 'ancient astronauts', who visited our planet
in the past, are responsible for the most ancient civilizations on
earth. Von Däniken claims that the myths, arts, technology, social
organizations, etc., of ancient cultures were introduced by visitors
from outer space.
Graham Hancockd has become recognized as an unconventional thinker who
raises legitimate questions about humanity's history and prehistory and
offers an increasingly popular challenge to the entrenched views of
Robert Bauval is co-author of books regarding pyramids of Egypt.
He is best known for his idea that the three Belt Stars in
Constellation of Orion are aligned in exactly the same way as
the three pyramids! Most researches on the subject agreed that the
alignment, though unusual, was no accident, given the precise
mathematical knowledge that the Egyptians had.
John Anthony West
John Anthony West is the leading authority and proponent of the
'Symbolist' school of Egyptology, an alternative interpretation of
ancient Egyptian culture advanced by the French scholar and
philosopher, R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz (1891-1962). In the Symbolist
view, Egyptian architecture and art disclose a richer and more
universal wisdom than conventional Egyptology has assumed. His findings
provide the first hard evidence that an earlier age of civilization
preceded the known development of civilization in the Nile valley. John
Anthony West also presents compelling new evidence that proves the
astrological premise: that correlations exist between events in the sky
and on earth, and that correspondences exist between the human
personality and the positions of the planets at birth.
David Hatcher Childress
David Hatcher Childress is the author of 15 books. He has
appeared in numerous documentaries about Atlantis, ancient mysteries
and UFOs, including The Mysterious Origins of Man, with Charlton Heston,
and The Search For Atlantis, with Richard Crenna. He also appears
regularly on national and international radio programs.
Professor Joseph Davidovits is international renown French
scientist, world expert in modern and ancient cements, geosynthesis
and man-made rocks. He is inventor of geopolymers and the chemistry
Professor Joseph Davidovits proposes a stunning theory of pyramid
construction that is based on scientific, historical, and linguistic
studies. The theory claims that the Egyptian pyramids were
constructed using agglomerated stone (limestone cast like concrete),
rather than carved and dragged blocks of natural limestone.
Hoimar von Ditfurth
Hoimar von Ditfurth is a German scientist. In his books he explores how
we and our planet are made of the same raw material as the stars and
the implications for intelligent life lurking in the universe. He
proposes evolution as a biological means for the creation of life in
its present form. He uses idea of evolution to explain the creation of
the cosmos and to speculate beyond our present knowledge of the
Martin Gray is a photographer, anthropologist. He spent sixteen
years traveling as a wandering pilgrim to over 1000 sacred sites in
more than 80 countries around the world. Traveling mostly by bicycle
and living as a monk at hundreds of temples, monasteries and sacred
mountains, he conducted exhaustive mythological and anthropological
study and extensive photographic documentation of the sites.
Rich Anders was borne and raised in Austria. He attended Rollins College in
Florida and graduated from the University of Vienna. Rich Anders spent 15 years
in various executive positions. Then he visited the Virgin Islands and stayed.
The Caribbean proved to be the right setting for writing this books.
The writing style employed by Anders embraces an eclectic spread
of physical and spiritual principles, ultimately shedding an unforgettable
viewpoint on the essence of God, the Devil, creation, and existence. His
books are recommended reading for students of religion, spirituality,
cosmology, and metaphysics.
Edgar Cayce throughout his life displayed one of the most remarkable
psychic talents of all time. For forty-three years of his adult life,
he demonstrated the uncanny ability to put himself into a self-induced
sleep. In this state of relaxation and meditation he could place his
mind in contact with all time and space.
Edgar Cayce promoted the importance of comparative study among belief
systems all over the world. The underlying principle of his readings is
the oneness of all life, tolerance for all people, and a compassion and
understanding for every major religion in the world.
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) is the pioneer esotericist
of our age.
Endowed from childhood with remarkable psychic powers she first
introduced knowledge of eastern religions to the West - including
the ideas of karma and reincarnation. She also launched the
Theosophical Movement calling her message Theosophy. Madame
Blavatsky proposed that all major religions are derived from one
original religious philosophy. She also promoted Universal
Brotherhood without regard to race, creed, sex, caste, or color.
Robert Bruce Baird
History is largely propaganda and a web of journalistic
intrigue written to benefit those who have been in charge. They won
the wars they generated through their NEEDS, and usurped the
knowledge of sincere adepts, like Jesus and Buddha. Many scholars
know that and it still goes on today; but the reasons for this
social engineering and priestly manipulation or economic intrigues
are known by few if any. - R.B. Baird

meticulousness. There is, nevertheless, enough useful information

Inner Tradition International, Ltd., 1990.
writer Milton adroitly hammers still more nails into the coffin of
the superstition that refuses to die: Darwinian evolution, The Cargo
Cult of the West (that is to say, Evolution as an accidental
process). Because this theory, (the only one in the world less
scientific than the Immaculate Conception), is absolutely central
and essential to the catechism of the Church of Progress, the
overwhelming evidence already accumulated against it cannot be
accepted by the academic/scientific Vatican. But it is important for
people with their rational and emotional faculties functioning more
or less normally to understand that evidence. Milton's book both
summarizes the evidence and adds many new angles and pieces along
the line. Again, the level of scientific/academic vituperation
greeting Milton's book comes close to proof that something
about it must be right.

What if the gods, the places they lived, and what they did are but ciphers for
celestial activity, a language for the perpetuation of complex astronomical data?
Drawing on scientific data, historical and literary sources, the authors
argue that our myths are the remains of a preliterate astronomy, an exacting
science whose power and accuracy were suppressed and then forgotten by an
emergent Greco-Roman world view. This is a truly seminal and original thesis, a book that should be read by anyone interested in science, myth, and the interactions between the two.
